Post menopausal the most natural outcome

  1. 1. Menopause may cause other changes that produce no symptoms yet affect your health. For instance, after menopause, womens rate of bone loss increases. Theincreased rate can lead to osteoporosis, which may in turn increase the risk of bone fractures. The risk of heart disease increases with age, but is not clearly tied to the menopause. During the female menstruation cycle, the production of estrogen is controlled by the hormone LH (Luteinizing Hormone) both indirectly and directly. Estrogen plays a role in female fertility and specifically ovulation.
  2. 2. Menopause is a term used to describe the permanentcessation of the primary functions of the human ovaries: the ripening and release of ova and the release of hormones that cause both the creation of the uterinelining and the subsequent shedding of the uterine lining. Women become post menopausal when the level of estrogen drops down to the least level. This change is usually not sudden or abrupt, it occurs over a period of years, and is a natural effect of aging.
  3. 3. However, for some women experience the associated signs and effects that can occur during the menopause transition years can significantly disrupt their daily activities and sense of well-being. If women dont have her periods in whole year the time period after this menopause is called as post menopause the time of a womans life following menopause is called postmenopausal. During this time, many of thebothersome symptoms that a woman experienced prior to menopause gradually ease for most women. But as a result of several factors, including a lower level ofestrogen, postmenopausal women are at increased risk for a number of health conditions, such as osteoporosis andheart disease. Ovaries stop producing eggs and menstrual periods end.
  4. 4. For several years before menopause, menstrual periodsbecome irregular, and many women develop hot flashes, night sweats, difficulty falling and staying asleep, andvaginal dryness. This stage is called primenopause or the menopausal transition. A woman is said to be postmenopausal when she has not had menstrual bleeding for at least 12 months. During the transition tomenopause, the ovarian production of estrogen decreases by more than 90 percent. The decrease in ovarian estrogen production may cause symptoms such as hot flashes, also known as vasomotor symptoms.
  5. 5. During the transition to menopause, the ovarian production of estrogen decreases by more than 90percent. The decrease in ovarian estrogen production may cause symptoms such as hot flashes, also known as vasomotor symptoms. When these issues occur, the pituitary gland does not communicate properly with the ovaries. Without the pituitary gland telling the ovaries to produce estrogen, not enough of the hormone will beproduced. But still post menopausal is not a disorder it is anatural aging effect happens to every woman and may get treatment for these issues.
